USA Synchro is proud to again sponsor USA Synchro de Mayo, a month-long opportunity for everyone to learn about, experience and try synchronized swimming. Events will be held across the country throughout the month of May to showcase all that this amazing sport has to offer.
"We are so excited to promote the Olympic sport of synchronized swimming," USA Synchro Executive Director Julie Fabsik-Swarts said. "Synchro clubs will be creating opportunities for the community to try out the sport and see the athleticism and the beauty of it. Parents can check out opportunities in their community to see what is available. You never know when you will find the next team of Olympians to represent the USA!"
Events in your area may include shows, free clinics, fun competitions, photo opportunities with top athletes, viewing parties of past competitions, a craft table where kids can design their own suits and more.
